Speedster GW Coupe – classic Mercedes re-invented

Speedster_gwcoupe

If a large sum of money fell my way in the next month, I would certainly consider buying the stunning Speedster GW Coupe.

It’s a modern vehicle, designed  in the spirit of the classic 1955 Mercedes 300SL coupe, complete with the same "Gullwing" doors that caused such a stir 50 years back. There’s also power steering, disc brakes, a five-speed manual gearbox, 5.3 or 6 litre engine, a stylish interior in keeping with a classic and of course, the reliability of a new build.

Obviously, none of this comes cheap. Expect to pay around £47,000 for one, which puts it on a par with any high-end sports car.
